1-3 months recovery. barbara, we wish you a lot of luck, a lot of good wishes. if you missed any part of today's show, check out my podcast. remember, this is the place for the answers to all of your medical questions. thanks for watching. i'm dr. sanjay gupta. more news on cnn starts right now. good morning. from cnn center, this is cnn sunday morning. it is 8:00 a.m. in atlanta. good morning. i'm jim acosta in for t.j. holmes. >> and i'm kate bolduan. thanks for starting your day with us. let's check your top stories. oil giant, b.p., back at work trying to cap the gushing oil spill deep in the gulf of mexico. the company hopes to eventually hook a mile-long pipe to the leaking wellhead to
8:01 am
siphon off some crude oil. b.p. says deploying oil disperse r per sants seems to be erupting. >> england has closed airports in manchester and liverpool. while london remains unaffected for now. >> a rude awakening off the i'll of puerto rico which was rattled by a 5.7 earthquake s the quake's epicenter was on the northwestern end. no injuries reported. electricity has been restored to the area. turning now to the situation in thailand, we should report street clashes in bangkok are now into a fourth day. there are reports of more violence. the government has changed its mind about imposing a curfew for now. our sarah side ner in the middle of it all. sarah, we looked at your live shot earlier.
8:02 am
you've obviously moved. you've moved to a location where you can't see the smoke quite as well as earlier. we saw it clearly rising behind you. how are things going there right now? >> same situation, though. the government reversed its decision to put a curfew in place saying that it believed it could get this situation under control and today has certainly been less deadly than the last three days. today, we have one confirmed death so far and we are still looking into reports that a few people have been injured today. we have new information about what is happening in the negotiations between the redshirts, the anti-government protesters athat want to see the government dissolve. the redshirts are saying they are willing to negotiate. they want a third party, the united nations. the government has responded saying it will not use any
8:03 am
outside negotiators, that this is an internal problem. so, here again, you have a bit of a stalement. jim? >> sarah, a lot of people are probably wondering, what is behind all this? americans and westerners see thailand as such a sought-after destination. lots of tourists go there. it is sort of coming out of nowhere that this country is in so much chaos right now. >> this is a country where you have this sort of thing flare up and then sort of calm down fr a while and flare up again. general lirks the redshirt protesters are a group of people from the poor, people that are upset with the way the government has gone. they do not believe that this government is looking out for their best interest. the government for its part has
8:04 am
said it is willing to negotiate in the beginning with putting one basic thing in place saying you have to leave the area, because these protesters have been in this area and have taken the area over for more than five weeks now. this is a commercial part of bangkok, not the entire city but a commercial part of bangkok where there are shopping malls, for example, businesses, and some residents. this is certainly not good for the thai economy. at this point in time, there is still a stalemate between the government and the redshirt protesters. it is hard to tell if things are getting better. >> our sara sidner in bangkok, thailand. stay safe. thanks for that report. there is a new concern in the gulf this morning. scientists studying the oil
8:05 am
spill keep finding huge plumes of oil under water. some lie just below the surface and all the way down to more than 4,000 feet in some areas. those plumes are defleeting oxygen levels. a further threat to the environment. reynolds wolf has more. >> reporter: we are about to get on this vessel and head out to sea. this is mike braynerd. what is today's snigs. >> we are going to be going to the mississippi sound and test some shrimp to see what the average size is. this will be used to open up our shrimp season. >> reporter: we are going to speed up a little bit. hold on. now, where exactly are we headed specifically? >> we are going to station three, which is in the bichanne.
8:06 am
>> reporter: has the oil spill been a concern? >> as of now, the oil hasn't gotten into our waters. it is definitely a concern. we are planning it will be a regular shrimp season. we have planes up there monitoring every day to see where the oil is and how far it is from our shores. >> reporter: how important are these little animals, little shrimp to the people that live sneer. >> it is very important, a big part of our culture here. bichlt lo it used to be called the shrimp capital of the u.s. >> reporter: he lowers his nets and raises his hopes for a good sample. he says conditions are perfect right now for shrimp to grow but any oil in these waters could put the season in jeopardy. >> it is kind of like agar d ga
8:07 am
for them to grow. >> reporter: michiganer men follow the work. >> these dudes too. >> reporter: dolphins know an easy male when they see one. the mississippi shrimping season could be a days away. it depends on the sample these biologists take back to headquarters and the efforts of others working to take it from shredding. >> we have brown shrimp and white shrimp. >> reporter: do you like what you see? >> definitely. this looks good. i hope the oil stays away so our fishermen can get involved in some of this. coming up next, a debate that goes back years. now, congress is getting involved. should women have more public rest roo restrooms or should it be equal for men and women? the videos that everybody ends up watching on line and

lightning strikes. it is happening up and around the gulf of mexico. here is where the gulf spill is located. the heavier oil in the darker blue color u can see more of a movement to the north because the winds have been more consistently south/southeast. there were a lot of changes in the initial stages. the winds were coming from all different directions. that kept the shape a little more circular. now, we are starting to see a little bit more flow unfortunately towards the coastline. the forecast is changing. take a look. here is what we are looking at right now. thunderstorms out there. in terms of how that effects the oil spill, the main thing it is doing right now, when there is lightning out there and really strong thunderstorms with winds up to 50, 60 miles an hour, it hampers the efforts that they are doing to protect wildlife. you can't take a boat out in the middle of a thunderstorm. that is a slowdown there. it creates variable winds and strong wind gusts. it may have a minimal effect on the oil spill itself. some people thablt heavy

8:23 am
>> good morning. >> a lot of this started when president obama decided to go after the ipad. >> he mentioned last week at a commencement speech i want to tell you what he said specifically that got so much response at cnn student notice. with ipods and ipads and xboxs and playstations, none of which i know how to work, information becomes a distraction, a diversion, a form of entertainment rather than a tool of empowerment, rather than the means of emancipation. >> as you can imagine, a middle and high school audience, very media savvy generation, they haven't grown up without a computer in the classroom. more than 700 of them logged on to our blog at cnn news.com ta touk about where they stood on this. it was a pretty devisive issue. >> this was the first president
8:24 am
that demand to have had his blackberry still. he is more media savvy than previous presidents. >> somebody pointed this out. this is somebody who used the media so much in his campaign and used blackberry and twitter. someone poichnted that out. as far as the student perspective, i have a comment from rodney. rodney feels that, you know, you can use this extra technology. it is a good thing. it keeps kids away from things like drugs and gangs, stuff like that. then, he argues with gaming, it gives him a chance to interact with people from different countries. on the other side of that, we had a comment from kyle. he is saying he mostly agree wts president. he thinks most kids are too dependent on electronics. they don't go outside. he said most kids don't know the difference between a norway pine and a jack pine. the only reason i did is because i went and looked it up afterwards. there is a consensus, probably
8:25 am
somewhat in the middle. learning how to balance what you do in your free time and learning what you should be doing. miss smith is a teacher that wrote us. as a teacher, the technology can be distracting in the classroom as many teachers know with kids checking their text messages and everything. she try toies to show her stude how empowering the items that students use can be. there were a lot of students that said, if you use it in moderation, they can be good sources of information and if you go overboard, they can be distracting. >> thank you so much, carl. the glitz and glamour of hollywood has land ond the shores of france for the 2010 cannes film festival. a much-anticipated sequel made its debut on friday at cannes. >> brooke anderson sat down with cast members of "wall street, money never sleeps." >> reporter: stars are so

welcome back. i'm jim acosta in for t.j. holms. >> and i'm kate bolduan. 8:30 eastern, 5:30 on the west coast. thanks for joining us. let's get a quick check of the oil spill situation in the gulf of mexico. b.p. is working to insert a tube into the ruptured pipe nearly a
8:32 am
mile beneath the surface. the plan is to siphon oil from the rupture to a ship above the site. they failed yesterday. it looks like spreading chemical disp dispersants is working. millions of gallons of crude oil has spilled in the last few weeks. they estimate the rate at 210,000 gals. reynolds wolf is live in biloxi, mississippi. we have been talking about the businesses, the fishermen, the shrimpers, are they seeing any optimistic signs out there? >> reporter: it is a tough thing to deal with. this is definitely a measure of frustration. seafood and oil from this slick certainly aren't going to mix. they have been taking some tremendous steps. not just fishermen but the people offshore. one of the latest has been the insertion tube that they have been placing right near the
8:33 am
biggest leak. the idea of trying to do that is incredibly difficult. you are taking a six-inch pipe into a leak that has a tremendous flow rate. that could be anywhere from, they are guesstimating 5,000 to 70,000 barrels a day. they are using three rovs, underwater robots. they are trying to put that in position to siphon the fuel. they will be able to siphon about 85% of the oil if they are lucky and put it in a tanker ship and bring it back to shofrmt that's one of the options they are using this morning to help protect the shore and the marine life. >> if it was only as simple as the animation makes it look. if those robotic subs could plug that oil leak, this would have been done a while ago. this is a difficult task down there. >> reporter: absolutely. it really and truly is.
8:34 am
short-term solution is to try to do something like that. the other idea is that it would siphon up to the surface. they have been taking some long-term steps also. some of the long-term solutions could be putting in two different wells. now, what they are doing is they have got two ships out there, drilling ships. they have dropped the implements needed to have those deep wells. as of friday night, one of them was down to about 3,000 feet below the surface. it is not like you can take one of these things, throw it over bored and it sin board. when it gets down there and they get all the material needed to make these wells, it is something that could take several nonmonths to implement. it is going to be with that insertion tube. >> let's keep our fingers crossed and our hopes high. >> thanks, reynolds.
8:35 am
appreciate it. >> you bet. >> we are also following another day of violent anti-government protests in bangkok, thailand. another protester was killed today in those clashes with government forces. that brings to 25 the number of civilian deaths since thursday. the government had planned to enforce a curfew but canceled that, at least for now. it says troops have the situation in control. a fur few curfew is still a pos. the government is delaying the start of the next cool term due to the violence. the government says it doesn't want the u.n. involved in negotiations to end protest. and, more travel troubles today in europe because of that erupting volcanic glacier in iceland. it has forced a couple of airports in ireland to close as well as airports in man chester and liverpool, england. london remains unaffected for now. passengers are being encouraged to check first with the airlines before headed to the airport.

as we all know, the u.s. military is made up of people of all faiths but is one religion being promoted over another. critics say fundamentalist christian offers are pressuring troops to convert to their beliefs. cnn's barbara starr takes a closer look. >> reporter: for carl birch, war is a spiritual mission. he spent a year ministering to the troops. >> when a soldier doms me with a problem, i never ask them what faith they are. >> reporter: caplan birch is a member of the baptist general conference. he says he would never try to force his belief on soldiers that come to him. it is a sensitive issue. >> it is a terrible, terrible cancer eating away at very core of our military.

8:38 am
enthusiastically pushed down upon our members of the military. >> reporter: chaplain birch has heard the stories too. he says chaplains are careful to walk the line. >> they need to be about all soldiers. if they are not, then there is no long-term room for them in the military. >> reporter: now, more than ever, religious diversity is the name of the game. no better example than here at pentagon chapel. jews, muslims and christians all live here. a christian chaplain would not say jewish or muslim prayers. >> i am not qualified to do that. i don't think those of other faiths want me to do their services. >> reporter: charles haines directs the religious project at
8:39 am
the museum. he says it is a tricky balance. >> it is tough any time you have government entangled with religion, it will be complicated to get it right. it is always going to sound as if it may be veering towards promoting one religion or another. chaplain birch says it is a challenge he willingly accepts. >> when they come to me asking for bread, i don't give them water. i help them at the point of need. i think most all chaplains do that or else soldiers wouldn't come to us. >> reporter: barbara starr, cnn, the pentagon. now, the oil spill in the gulf cost thousands of fishermen their jobs. >> now, b.p. is making good on its promise to put some of them to work. sounds like good news. it is not good news in all cases. hear why some fishermen are frustrated. ain oats can help lower my cholesterol. it's gonna be tough...so tough.
